Hastings & Bexhill Rugby Club is set to begin the final month of its survival quest with a key home fixture.

After a gap in the London Three South East programme last weekend, H&B will resume their battle to avoid relegation by hosting Bromley tomorrow (Saturday). Kick-off is 3pm.

H&B are third-from-bottom of the table following a very good 15-5 win at home to Pulborough last time out a fortnight ago.
